Sunday Funnies: Chafin's Stache

From AZ Phil a couple weeks ago: "Chafin has been exactly the same each outing so far this Spring... his command and consistency never seem to waver... "
Plus that stache.

lefty goose goosage reporting in...

these bats are killing me.

they need more than a waffle maker to feed these bats.  julio zueleta needs to be hired for batting coach and the ricketts need to toss some serious loot into the fruit budget for him.

as of the end of this game (game 9) there's only 1 player on the team hitting more than .250 (j.marisnick).

bryant, baez, contreras, marisnick are the only guys hitting more than .200.

Two awful days of baseball.

On top of that, Dexter Fowler (Angels) tore his ACL and will undergo season ending  reconstruction surgery.  

He's a hero in my Cub/heart no matter how the remainder of his career goes, but at 35 yrs, he will have a rough road ahead.

It's not good to play bad teams early because they have the confidence and energy they won't have later in the season after they realize they suck and all is lost. 

Guessing I'm a little late to the game on this; but just read Chafin's twitter about wanting to buy a cheap car to drive around Chicago. He seems like a good dude. 

Luis Urias is not impressed đŸ˜©

Honestly, Urias guessed wrong on that one. But he stilled managed to make contact despite being way out in front, so that breaker must have rolled.

You can't fire all the players. Why is that, again?

antifa, probably.

*shakes fist*

Maybe if we threaten to move the team to Miami if they lose enough games it will be the motivation that they need to pull togethert for an improbable run to the playoffs. 

they could motivate the team with a full sized cutout of a nude tom ricketts they reveal a little bit at a time when they win.

    The Cubs have optioned RHP Robert Stock back to AAA Iowa, and recalled LHP Brad Wieck.

    The Cubs have purchased the contract of RHSP Mike Hauschild (ex-TOR) from Lexington (Atlantic League) and he has been asigned to AAA Iowa. 

    The Cubs are clearly beating the bushes of indepenent league baseball. Hauschild is the sixth player acquired by the Cubs from independent league teams in the last month (Jose Almonte, Tyler Ladendorf, Tim Susnara, Matt Warkentin, and Jarod Wright are the other five).

    (c) hendricks gives up at least 60 homers in the regular season

    seriously, though...wisdom has "slowed down" the past 10 days or so, but he still managed a couple homers.  he's got a damn good shot at 20+ even if bote+duffy come back to steal a little time from him.

    This Mets series is going poorly, so... off-topic question. Which of these outcomes do you currently think is more likely in 2021: (a) Javy hits at least 40 homeruns in the regular season, (b) Patrick Wisdom hits at least 20 homeruns in the regular season.

    wow...and he's done for the night.  that's not good...well, for mets fans.

    meanwhile...degrom with 8 Ks through 3 perfect innings.  he's also got a RBI single.

    and d.smith gets HBP.

    this is high end next level strategy.  you beat degrom by injuring everyone until they have to forfeit the game.  moneyballs.

    ow...villar got nailed in the ear and the back of the head by a throw from lobaton on a stolen base.

    CHARLIE: You are absolutely right.

    Granted there are existing rules prohibiting pitchers from using foreign substances, but you don't change enforcement protocols suddenly in the middle of the season. Pitchers should be given an opportunity to make adjustments during the course of Spring Training before any new enforcement policy is implememted.

    This can and should be addressed in the upcoming CBA negotiations. Not now.

    That was definitely my position prior to this year. But I am starting to buy into the claim that almost all pitchers are using something, even if it is rosin and sunscreen in many cases.

    brews did the cubs a solid by losing before the cubs have to take on degrom.

    dude can barely move behind the plate these days.  i wouldn't trust him to stop a passed ball or a wild pitch even with his advanced skill.

    that said, all the cubs in-house options kinda suck.

    hey d.ross, grab a glove and get to work.
